Easton Zinfandel Old Vine Rinaldi Vineyard Fiddletown 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Dark in color and on the nose with old wood, earthy, dried flowers aromas wed to a core of very masculine, oily and dark fruit. Packed and smooth in the mouth with intensely briary, spicy and rich black cherry fruit and boysenberry flavors. This is a rich and complex wine with abundant ripe tannins, bright, juicy acids, and a long intense finish. Powerful and gorgeous. 93pts

TERRE ROUGE and EASTON Wines is located in California on the West Slope of the Sierra Nevada in Amador County's Shenandoah Valley. Our wines are made from vineyards in four Sierra Foothill counties: Placer, El Dorado, Amador, and Calaveras. We also source fruit from one vineyard site in the soon-to-be new Clements appellation. The style of our wines emphasizes deep color, balanced flavors, full middle palate, and a long finish, with power and finesse. They gain complexity with age. Our goal has been to make the finest wines possible from our region - wines that transcend time and place and can be placed on the table with the best wines of the world. They are meant to be enjoyed with good food and friends. Our winery and vineyards are at the biotic transition zone between the Foothill Oak Belt as characterized by the Sierra Foothill Woodland on the Terre Rouge label, and the Yellow Pine Belt as characterized by the Ponderosa Pine on the Easton label. We farm our vineyards sustainably and our winery derives most of its electrical power from solar panels located the roof of the main winery building. On the next few pages, we share our wines with you. We make over twenty different wines, many of which are very small production (under 600 cases). Each is unique and site-specific with a sense of place (terroir) all of their own. Visit us in California's Shenandoah Valley or just visit us on line. If you get lost on the trail or just want to speak to a person, give us a call. We'd love to hear from you. Read less

Earthy top notes on the nose are joined by sweet cherry stone fruit and light herbal shadings. There’s a lovely suggestion of sweetness on entry, not sugar, just a wonderful ripeness of fruit and this is all about small berry fruit. On the mid-palate the tannins are a bit intrusive, adding firmness to the wild berry fruit that lays over a lovely base of soil tones. This is a touch rustic in an attractive way, big and wild, with berry fruit and a fresh, zesty finish. 92 points
